Hmmm. Wow. No kidding. I'd never have thought the xc pros have gone to a rim that wide.30mm is what the two top XCO current champs use. Nino Schurter.
Sorry for the misspelling. Corrected.
Maxxis Rekon Race 2.25 is one tire used on DT Swiss XMC 1200 Spline 30mm.
So, which would one would you buy again? DTxr391?I have both Stan's Arch MK3 rear with Stans Hub front DT 240 CX Ray Spokes
Race set Tune Hubs DT Revoution 2.0/1.5 spokes and DT XR 391 Rims
Both are great DT weight 450g with washers and the Stans Are 450g also
DT seems a bit stiffer Used several tires on both
2.25 Recon Race
2.25 Rocket Ron Addix Speed
2.3 S works Renegade
2.25 Michelin Jet XCR
I really like the DT Swiss XR 391 nice width and the quality and finish is superior to the Arch MK 3.So, which would one would you buy again? DTxr391?

I was sold on the DT xr391, but now I've been reading good reviews on Raceface ARC rims. On paper they are pretty close, not sure what else to use for making a decision. Both 25mm, 440/450g rim weight. Price wise...I'm guessing they are comparable.The kom 23's I had weren't very stiff. The arc24 is lighter and stiffer.
I've done the arc 24, 27, and 30 and have been impressed with all of them. I need to do some new dt's for comparison, but the arcs definitely beat the koms.
